The portion of the Ottawa River shoreline which lies within MVCA jurisdiction extends from Marshall Bay to Shirley’s Bay, including Constance Bay.

Floodplain Mapping

With funding and in cooperation with the City of Ottawa, MVCA has undertaken a five-year program of producing flood risk maps throughout the City. Identifying lands that are vulnerable to flooding is an important responsibility for Ontario's Conservation Authorities.
